“I am talking to you” is using the fixed format of the dramatic dialog used in all Soap Operas, and keep replacing the character, to create a new conversation, that is actually the same. This conversation goes on forever, using all the clichés, so fixed in our speech, so everything is very clear, but actually has no meaning. Exaggerated blur of the images, unite them in a world that is different than our’s, allows us to judge them, as if we are something else. The title is an example for how the language we use creates a reality, where people talk to, rather than converse with, or listen to.
